The Running Responsibly Program
We, the people who make Brooks go, are active. We treasure and thrive in the outdoors and enjoy spending time in our local communities. We know what really matters: the long-term well-being of people, the planet, and our role in nurturing both.
The Brooks Running Responsibly Program is our strategic and holistic Corporate Responsibility platform, which measures sustainability through five pillars; community, fair labor, product design and materials, manufacturing, and our footprint. This program is led by our Corporate Responsibility team, which engages with all levels of the organization to manage our environmental and social issues. Corporate Responsibility isn't an isolated program on the shoulders of a few, it's a way of thinking and acting that infuses all we do, at every level. The Brooks culture is more than words on a page—it's those words put into action every day and it's built on a platform of personal empowerment and accountability. We expect employees to own this brand, and that includes stewarding the environment and local communities in their daily behaviors.
Working toward sustainability is a journey, and while we've taken a number of important steps, we are acutely aware that we've only just begun. For us, there is no finish line. We're continually looking to evolve our Running Responsibly strategic approach to ensure alignment with key social and environmental issues. We invite the running community to send comments, questions and suggestions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
